VIP August 2019

Bianca Gardner, Assistant Director of Recreation

Dear Members, It is with a heavy heart that I announce I am stepping down from my current position at Forest Highlands, after this coming Labor Day weekend. Over the past 4 years, I have taken pride in managing and growing the Fitness and Spa here. I have developed relationships with many of you, and enjoyed seeing some of you throughout the year, and others coming back each summer. In October 2018, I decided to expand my career horizons by enrolling in a Life Coaching Certification program. My original goal was to offer Life Coaching and Weight Coaching services to Forest Highlands’ members, as an additional service within the fitness/wellness department. After I became certified as a Life and Weight Coach, I discovered that I had a true passion for it, and I began to entertain the thought of doing it as a full time career. I was torn between pursuing my new found passion, or continuing to grow within my position at Forest Highlands. Throughout the summer my passion for life coaching continued to grow and so did my skills, and my client base. I realized that I could not balance both careers and I had to choose where I would focus my time and energy. Therefore, I have decided to take the risk of becoming an entrepreneur and go into coaching full time. Kurt Martin and I have discussed what my role could be moving forward. I will continue to work at Forest Highlands part time as a personal trainer, class instructor, and assistant to the Recreation Department for the remainder of the year and possibly even next season. When it is time to re-hire someone to replace me, I have offered to help in training that individual. So, this is farewell but not goodbye forever. Please feel free to reach out by email, phone, or stop by my office any time in the next month. I will miss seeing you all on a regular basis! Kind regards, Bianca Gardner Assistant Director of Recreation Fitness, Wellness, Spa, and Aquatics bgardner@fhgc.com 928-525-5223
